Easy Stamped Initial Painting
What You'll Need:
Paints (Deco Art Chalky Paints were the only thing I had handy!)
Thick Paper ( I used card stock) or a small canvas
What to Do:
The first step is to tape out your initials I used some painters tape and made the girls first initial on the paper.
Next, it's time to make the potato stamps. My idea was to have the kids use the stamps to make some funky patterns on the paper. I simply cut out triangles from a couple old potatoes.
And finally, it's time to paint. Depending on the age of your kids, make sure to have a good sized workspace that's protected with some newspaper or a drop cloth.
Once the kids have stamped/painted their pieces, set them aside and let them dry a bit. I waited until they were almost dry and then carefully peeled off the tape.
And voila! A super cute initial that your kids will love! Stella thought it was pretty amazing! Alice who's almost 2 mostly enjoyed getting messy and eating her potato! Not so much stamping, more like mashing and rubbing; but it doesn't matter. They had a blast and we spent a good portion of the rainy morning creating masterpieces!
